Something in The Air (Radiogram Adventures)

 

Sometimes you look at a record with its title and it does not mean anything. My sister and I never bothered with this 45 in the radiogram collection because we did not know the song by title. Then one day we put it on and realised it was one that we liked. We knew the song and tune, but reading the title on the 45 did not register until we took the chance and played it. So this Thunderclap Newman really does remind me of retro Britain and my kid years. We lived in flats in Poplar, East London at the time and could see the dome of St Paul's Cathedral and the Post Office Tower. This song congers up that memory of those two landmarks in the mist of the inner London city.
